Smartphones and other smart devices have brought us to a new level of connectivity, information gathering and sharing over the internet. The popularity of mobile devices has also brought us, that’s right… Selfies. Unfortunately, with selfies comes the duckface, butt selfies and other crazy acts caught on camera. Selfies are evidence of how some people take great risks and do pretty dangerous and stupid things just to take a selfie that will create a buzz or stir attention from other people.
Some experts have stated that posting selfies on social media platforms suggests behaviours of self-objectification and narcissism. The following 20 selfies showcase some funny, silly and dangerous ways people show their vanity.
1. Why not take a crotch shot AND a duck face selfie?
2. A selfie capturing the frightening moment before a great white shark bit off his leg, which caused massive blood loss. The man pictured died on the way to the hospital.
3. We’re hoping this one was set up as a joke. If not, hide the evidence man… Hide it.
4. Jessica Simpson under face wraps. This speaks for itself.
5. Yeah, show them your lawnmower, man. Show them who’s boss of the garden!
6. When you want to conquer your fear, it shouldn’t result in your death. This girl fell to her death after losing her balance moments after taking this selfie.
7. A cute photobomber.
8. Well he certainly has the “cute selfie” down pat. Nice bike.
9. Taking pictures of your loved ones is not a crime, but if you’re taking a selfie with your dead grandma as the backdrop, you’ve crossed the line.
10. Trying to show you’re a healthy eater by eating a banana or trying to show some “other” skill?
11. Sexual chocolate selfie, anyone? Man, clean up that mess. More importantly, how could you waste perfectly good chocolate topping!?
12. It’s important to bring balance to the force… and your biceps.
13. King Kong ain’t got nothing on me, biotch! Also, great way to hold a phone when you need your hands free for posing.
14. Hold on for dear life, my dear.
15. Oi! What the hell are you doing? Clean up the kitchen now!
16. Adam and Eve… With a mobile phone, in front of a mirror with lots of plastic plants. Cool bird!
17. Clean your room before trying to impress someone with your selfie.
18. Show me your pearly whites, Mr. Great White!
19. Do I look fabulous? The answer is YES.
20. Oh fu%&,! I’m so dead! BUT, let me take a selfie before I get trampled by this raging bull. Nice!
Selfies are fun, but make sure you’re free and clear of sharks before taking that shot.
